What no one tells parents about the dating app Qeep
Today we’re getting the inside scoop on Qeep as we draw near to the end of our Dating Apps for Parents of Teens series.
I hope you are feeling a bit more comfortable with talking to your teens and young adult kids about dating apps. And, seeing that while most of these dating apps serve to connect users, they all have features that make them loved by their users. That’s certainly the case with Qeep.
Age: 17 & Up
In-App Purchases: Yes
Contains Ads: Yes
Qeep is called a dating app. And while that’s an appropriate category, it’s really more of a mobile gaming and entertainment platform. Users join by downloading the app from the iOS or GooglePlay store and then registering for an account by logging in with their existing Facebook or Google account. Once users have an account, they can access Qeep’s website.
Games are what make Qeep different from many of the other dating apps listed here. Part of what makes it appealing to users is they can play games and chat with other users. They can also send “blast sound attacks” right to their friends’ phones. A Sound Attack will cause a fellow Qeeper’s phone to start blasting them with sounds without warning. The app lets you browse nearby singles as well as new users.
Gaming and pranking aren’t the only things users can do on Qeep. They can also upload photos, view photos from other users, and chat using the available chat rooms.
The app is free, but many of the features are paid features. It’s easy to rack up charges if you want to play games with other users.
What Teens Say
Teens who like gaming are drawn to Qeep. Although the app is for teens 17 and up, the ability to Sound Blast other users gives this dating app appeal to a younger audience.
What Parents Need to Know
Although teens can join at 17 years old, they are not able to use any of the paid features until they are 18. There is an age verification process. I can’t say how strict verification is, however. The app is advertised as a free app, but it’s most likely users will spend money to play games and access other features.
